The UJB almost has a unique classical intro from Jerry out of Space. Cool transition from UJB>Truckin'....this Truckin' is awesome. You get to see Bob hit himself in the head when he screws up some lyrics.......and then the beginnings of Dew and the fadeout....ahhhh that hurt, but still awesome!

I've been watching/listening to this one straight through today, as I get some stuff done at home. The video stays consistently bright after 'The Music Never Stopped', which is very strong, as is just about every other tune from this show.

The band sounds so healthy and powerful! This may be the best show I have heard from '82 so far. Wow!

I thought the clear cut highlight of this show was the Eyes,one of only a handful of credible performances from the 80's.Tight ensemble playing,multiple themes explored,Weir very present and interesting,fluid and crisp Jerry,all in all an excellent version.
